Data Scientist Smart Factory


Manufacturing companies are seizing the moment and transforming into digitalized smart factories. A momentum inspired by technology, but also a necessity as due to the shortage of skilled engineers many processes need automation. Data science will play a significant role in achieving the full potential of automation by using advanced, predictive and prescriptive analytics.

You are a data scientist with affinity for the manufacturing industry. You can talk to engineers to capture requirements and translate these into data solutions. You are able to ingest data from IoT gateways, store the data in the appropriate data base, pre-process the data and perform advanced analytics on the data. To leverage the data solution, you write algorithms (supervised and unsupervised learning) and integrate the results of the algorithms to a back-end system.

What we expect you to do:

  • Design and build data solutions
  • Integrate predictive models and classifiers into a scalable production platform
  • Implement both supervised and unsupervised machine learning algorithms, fluently written in R / Python
  • Capture business requirements and translate them in to data solutions
  • Continuous learn and explore new techniques and domains

Your profile

  • You obtained a master’s degree in applied statistics or computer science
  • You possess a deep understanding of clustering, manifold learning, predictive modeling techniques and recommender systems
  • You are an expert in R and/or Python
  • You have experience in setting up data solutions on public cloud providers (Azure, AWS, Google)
  • You are able to setup real-time computing frameworks
  • You communicate clearly in English (both written and spoken).

Our offer

  • The opportunity to have a meaningful job.
  • The opportunity to grow as a professional (Yes there will be training).
  • A good work-life balance: offering flexible hours, satellite offices, home working and an informal no-nonsense environment.
  • 32 days of annual leave, because life isn’t all about working.
  • We provide you with a company car and a fuel card.
  • Group insurance and hospitalization insurance, because we care about you.
  • And of course, we also offer a gross salary. One, which is optimized from a net perspective for our employees!
